This tiny sandwich spot always intrigued me when I walk to my gym right around the corner and very attempting too for the long line that goes around the block during lunch hour. Today I finally had the time to step in to see what is all the wait is about. To my disappointment, their famous pastrami sandwich was already sold out at 2PM.... So, I went for their Vietnamese BBQ Pork Sandwich. It costs me $10.50. The end result you might ask? It was surprisingly good! Does it taste authentic? It doesn't. Still, it is a good sandwich on a dark kaiser roll lightly toasted with nice dressing and damn good BBQ pulled pork. It was also a satisfying portion. I saved half for another day. I am excited to return to try their signature sandwich another time, hoping it will not run out!

I'm a humongous fan of this place. It's not far from work and their sandwiches are HUGE! I only eat a half at a time, so I get two lunches out of it. Everything on their menu is awesome. The rare roast beef is my favorite, with the corned beef being a close second. I've tried the spicy pork (not spicy, but still tasty), the coppa, and the cauliflower curry. I recommend going with a few people and then splitting a bunch of different sandwiches.

Taking a class in the neighborhood and stopped by for lunch. Huge line moved super fast and the lamb/eggplant/chickpea sandwich was fantastic.

Great place to grab an on-the-move lunch. There's no seating, and it's popular so there's usually a line but the line moves quickly. Their Pork & Fig sandwich was fantastic. The pork is well seasoned and the figs give the sandwich a nice sweetness. Will definitely be back.

I prefer to stop by here in the morning now, and it's all because of their muffins. Just the right amount of fluffiness and not dry at all. The fruit to muffin ratio is just right - not too much fruit nor too doughy. The sour cherry muffin is my favorite since it is sweet and sour and goes well with a flavored coffee. I have also tried the strawberry, blueberry, peach, and tart apple - all are good really. Note for lunch, it is all about the corned beef sandwich. The version with gruyere is so much better so ask for it. Strictly a to-go spot since there are no seating. It is like a kiosk, and I wish there were seats because I don't like bringing soggy sandwiches back to the office.

Really good sandwiches! Try to go a little early or late at lunch time to beat the line, although it does move quickly. I hear they have good breakfast too.

Finally got around to trying this place, after sitting in my bookmarks for some two+ years. Hey, like I said, sandwiches aren't something I really seek out anymore. But, coming about a quarter after noon, I was surprised to find that the line was only about five people long, and that it moved very, very quickly. A few minutes later, I head out with my spicy pork on wheat sandwich, which was, overall, pretty solid: good flavors, a bit (just a bit) of kick, and filling, with half the sandwich enough to tide me over until dinner. That said, they're definitely on the pricier side, all around the $10 mark. So, imagine how bummed I was when I woke up the next morning, having blacked out the night before, to find that I had left the other half of the sandwich in the microwave and passed out before I had a chance to eat it :( ***Accessibility Info*** Venue - A small shop on the corner, without any noticeable seating. You wait in line on the sidewalk, go up to the counter to order, and walk out with your sandwich. Plenty of space inside the shop, so no real accessibility issues here. Bathroom - Give the aforementioned, I'm not entirely sure they even had a public one.
